Crumpled graphene: preparation and applications

Author affiliations


A comprehensive overview and description of crumpled graphene explored in recent years for energy storage applications is presented. Although graphene is known as one of the best electronic materials, preparation of crumpled graphene has been less explored. This article selectively aims to present an overview of the advancement of research in crumpled graphene, in the areas of preparation and applications especially in energy storage, such as supercapacitors and lithium ion batteries. When graphene is transformed ino the crumpled form, the resulting material can give superior capacitance due to its unique properties like extremely high specific surface area, high conductivity and stability against graphitization (aggregation-resistant) compared to those of flat graphene sheets which tend to aggregate and thus lead to a dramatic decrease in the surface area, leading to poor capacitance.
